Global Astronomy Month is the world’s largest annual celebration of astronomy. Whether local events or online, watching or sharing, science or art, there’s something for everyone.
The Astronomers Without Borders global community is at the heart of everything we do. Bringing the community together through astronomy fosters friendship, understanding, and good will. Programs and activities are made possible by the participation of AWB members.
Thanks to Karen Jay for fully supporting AstroFest, this small organization will be doing some BIG work. As part of the AWB's BIG campaign, AstroFest will now have additional telescopes to have outreach programs in local Kosovo towns and at their annual AstroFest in August. Congratulations!
The moon will be its closest to the earth since 1948! This phenomenon will grace our skies on November 14. Keep your eyes on this larger than normal moon as it passes 356,509 km from the earth. WE WANT YOUR PICTURES! Go out and take a pic - we'd like to see it. Post it on our Facebook page.
Enjoy the verses of Harley White's new poem, Skies of Wonder featuring the globular cluster NGC 36.
Skies of wondrous starry nights all aglow with shining lights, we look up to you with awe thus to inspiration draw…
Fortunate we earthlings are on a planet not bizarre, close enough but not too far from our solar system’s star
